WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Madeline Whitesell, soprano
Jeeson Eun has helped me in becoming a more thoughtful, expressive artist. She is very precise and can help a singer polish pieces that are very musically difficult, but also is very good at bringing out expressive nuances, and helping singers craft a character and story for every piece they sing. She has a very good ear for diction and will help you use the language as a way to interpret the music more fully. Jeeson is one of the few coaching I’ve worked with who I feel has helped me improve my singing; she studies voice and is very aware of what she is asking singers to do with their instrument. I also had a very good experience with her helping me prepare a full recital with very little time given in advanced. I don’t think I would have been able to do it without her dedication and organization.
Caitlin Hennessy, soprano
Jeeson Eun has been a vital part of my personal growth and musical development over the past two years at the University of Illinois. She has accompanied me in my weekly lessons, provided additional vocal coaching, and recently assisted me in making audition videos in her home studio. Jeeson is encouraging in everything I do. She is an amazing pianist and works very professionally. It is comforting to know that I have someone who is always prepared and reliable. Jeeson is a very important person in my life and I am so blessed to work with her.
Timothy Bostwick, baritone
I have had the pleasure of working with Jeeson for 2 years now. In that time she has prepared me for 2 operas and 2 recitals. Professionally, what impresses me most is her attention to detail in the text. Making sure that each word has a specific meaning which informs the overall musical phrase and gesture. In our most recent recital, we ambitiously chose a set of Charles Ives songs, which she plays fantastically. In addition to this, she has set up a studio that is warm and inviting. It is geared towards the singers comfort, with bright lighting and high ceilings. She has also begun a recording studio that is affordable for the young artists. I highly recommend her skills in both professional categories.
